Thank you for purchasing a Manfrotto product.
Manfrotto products are warranted to be fit for the purpose for which they have been designed, and to be free from defects in materials and workmanship.

Manfrotto offers two levels of Warranty:
- A first level Statutory Warranty referred to as the "Standard Limited Warranty", defined by the law applicable in the country in which the product is sold.
- A second level of Warranty referred to as "Limited Conventional Warranty Extension", offered by Manfrotto as a special extension to the "standard" Warranty. Manfrotto's "Limited Conventional Warranty Extension" is free of charge.

"Standard Limited Warranty".
The validity period of the Standard Limited Warranty is defined by applicable law in the country, state or region where the product is sold. For example, retail sales in Italy are covered by a standard warranty valid two years from the original date of purchase for a private purchaser and consumer and for one year if the purchaser is a company or a VAT registered professional (Italian consumer goods legislation D.Lgs 206/2005 – Consumer Code).
This warranty does not cover any defects or costs caused by:
- misuse and subsequent damage. Misuse is defined by, but not limited to, the cases described here below, in the additional documentation and in the instruction manual included with the product.
- modification, alteration, repair or service of this product by anyone other than Manfrotto;
- physical abuse to, overload of, or misuse of, the product or operation thereof in a manner contrary to the instructions accompanying the product;
- any use of the product other than that for which it was designed;
- shipment of the product to Manfrotto for service;
- failure to comply with care and maintenance instructions accompanying the product.

Manfrotto "Limited Conventional Warranty Extension": free warranty extension up to 5 years from the date of purchase.
Beyond the standard coverage outlined above, Manfrotto offers an additional limited warranty extension valid up to 5 years from the original date of purchase, in accordance with the terms and conditions overleaf. The Manfrotto "Limited Conventional Warranty Extension" is free of charge and does not affect the mandatory "Standard Limited Warranty".
The "Limited Conventional Warranty Extension" is only valid if the country of (shipping) /purchase/registration is the same.
To take advantage of the "Limited Conventional Warranty Extension" scheme, you must register your product with us within 12 months from the date of purchase.
Go to warranty.manfrotto.com (If you purchased a product from our website, you will receive an email from us containing a link to register your product). Please enter all the required information. Please ensure that you keep your receipt as proof of purchase for the warranty to be valid: you will need to send us your receipt when you service or repair your product under warranty.

Warranty on any replacement parts is limited to 90 days or the unexpired portion of the warranty period of the product on which the parts are being used, whichever is longer.
